The service in this small restaurant was wonderful. We ordered a Bouillabaisse ahead of time when we made our reservation, and it was wonderful. Not as expensive as some of the real touristy restaurants.More

The delightful, helpful waitress advised us to share a starter - thank goodness we did, particularly as we had arrived hungry and snaffled up the delicious tapenade and bread offered. My husband's main course of bouillabaisse was superb and my sea bass was delectable. No...More
